Testify of Me!  Your testimony attests to the covenant you have with Me, and coupled with My blood, it releases power to overcome.  Testimony halts the accusations of the enemy, silencing every indictment he brings against you. This was the power of the early church – that they found common ground in their testimonies, and chose to share and demonstrate it. How has My life been demonstrated in you?  Declare it out!  How has My covenant been confirmed in you?  Speak it forth!  Have I not set you free?  Shout it out!  You are to be My witnesses, giving evidence that I AM the Restorer, I AM Savior, I AM God, and I AM up close and personal.  Live in such a way as to constantly give proof of My interaction in your everyday life.  Do you want to be an overcomer?  Testify!  Rev. 12:11, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives to the death.”

I am praying for you.  I am praying perfectly and with only your good in mind.  My Spirit is praying for you – perfectly, with only your good in mind.  This is the importance of understanding and knowing My will.  Where two of you agree as touching anything, it shall be done.  We are One, you make a second, but you must come into agreement with what I am praying for you.  You do not see from My perspective and cannot always make judgments regarding what is best.  However, if you will come and sit at My feet, I will reveal what I am praying for you, so in agreeing with it, we can see it done in your life.  Do not fear My will.  If I will go to the cross for you and My Spirit dwells within you, could My desires be anything but a hope-filled future?  Be a student of the Word.  Make it a priority to discover what is in My heart, and let us come into agreement regarding your situation.  The Father delights in answering our prayers.  Rom. 4:20-21, “He did not by lack of trust decide against God’s promises.  On the contrary, by trust he was given power as he gave glory to God, for he was fully convinced [in agreement] that what God had promised He could also accomplish.”

I am your assurance, not your insurance.  This assurance is based on our covenant relationship; it is not purchased with good works.  Have I not given you My Holy Spirit as your guarantee?  You must learn to bring into captivity the enemy’s suggestions that you must do more, work harder, to assure your place with Me.  It is this subtle lie that wreaks more havoc in My Kingdom that anything else.  The enemy alone has a bar, and the more you try to meet preconceived expectations, the higher that bar will go.  You will never attain assurance through it, but you will doubt more, work more, and neglect Me more, all in a quest to reach an undefined expectation.  No, My child, I have no bar raised over your head.  I am holding out My hand, that we may fellowship and partner one with another in My Kingdom work. Let Me assure you, My grasp is tight, and I won’t let you go.  Eph. 1:13-14, “And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession – to the praise of His glory.”

Begin to command and exhale the breath of life into your situation and into your nation.  My people, you must know that every exhalation can signify coming death or it can be a transference of life. You came to life when I exhaled My life into your nostrils. What are you doing with the breath I breathed into you? My prophets made declarations that shaped nations and brought hope to My people. Others spoke forth vanities and death. My child, choose to be like Me!  Prophesy, and exhale Life! Ez. 37:9, “Then He said to me, ‘Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: come breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’ So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet – a vast army.”

If I so loved the world that I gave, how then ought you to love?  Giving of yourself is the ultimate expression of love, even when your gift is not received.  It is a sign of mature love.  I gave My Son, My Son gave the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit gives you all things that pertain to life and godliness. As you have freely received of My love, freely give My love. For love doesn’t place people under the bondage of a debt to be repaid, but love is for giving. Be moved with such compassion, that you are willing to pour yourself out on behalf of the object of your love, and let that object be the same as Mine, so that it can be said of you, too, that you so loved the world, that you gave. As I am, so you, too, should be.  I John 4:11-17, “Beloved friends, if this is how God loved us, we likewise ought to love one another.  No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God remains united with us, and our love for Him has been brought to its goal in us.  Here is how we know that we remain united with Him and He with us; He has given to us from His own Spirit.  Moreover, we have seen and we testify that the Father has sent His Son as Deliverer of the world.  If someone acknowledges that Jesus us the Son of God, God remains united with Him and he with God.  Also, we have come to know and trust the love that God has for us.  God is love; and those who remain in this love remain united with God, and God remains united with them.  Here is how love has been brought to maturity in us:  as Christ is, so are we in the world.”

9/22/2017 Daily Word

The enemy is working to agitate the spirits of My people and bring trouble to their hearts.  My Child, you mustn’t allow him to do so.  Agitation and trouble bring fear into your life, keeping you from the abundance of life I have for you and polarizing your effectiveness for the Kingdom of God.  What you are looking at affects your action.  When faced with fear, refocus on Me and step out confidently in love. Look continually toward Me and not on the circumstances that surround you. If you will allow it, My love will banish your fear. I am the Unchanging God, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End, the Author and Finisher of your Faith. Believe Me when I say I have never left, nor will I ever leave or forsake you.  John 14:1, 18 “Let not your heart be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in Me…I will not leave you as orphans, but I will come to you.”

What is your fig leaf?  What are you using to hide yourself from Me?  Am I not your Creator and God?  There is nothing that is hidden from Me.  I see the deepest hurts and have forgiven the greatest sins, and yet you persist in trying to cover yourself before Me.  As all things disconnected from their source of life, your fig leaf will eventually grow brittle and disintegrate, leaving you once more exposed before Me.  Will you never tire, child, of trying to cover up past shame that I have covered in My blood?  Be at rest, My Child.  Be at rest.  Fig leaves are unnecessary in My presence.  I have bid you to come boldly, not weakly; in confidence, not timidity. You are My child whom I love and whom I have redeemed!  Heb. 4:15-16, “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are – yet He did not sin.  Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

9/20/2017 Daily Word

In all your ways acknowledge Me. Wherever you go, whatever you do, and in what you say, acknowledge Me.  If you will recognize the importance of My presence in your life, listen for Me, and heed My voice, then, without fail, I will make straight that which is crooked and illuminate the way you are to take.  My path for your life is pleasing and upright.  Although not without its challenges, it is outfitted with everything you need to prosper; everything that will give you a future and hope.  Indeed, My paths are teeming with life!  However, you must acknowledge Me – all that is Me – including My omniscience, My sovereignty, and My love. Trust that though My way is sometimes unfamiliar, My wisdom is greater than your own and I will never send you down a path that I am unwilling to walk with you. Prov. 3:6, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.”

9/19/2017 Daily Word

You fill up My senses!  You are the apple of My eye, continually before Me.  I’ve engraved you on the palm of My hands.  Your voice lifted in praise is the sweetest of fragrances to Me. I listen to your prayers that I may act on behalf of My righteous child.  Indeed, I rejoice over you with singing.  To give you abundance of life is My delight.  How I love you, My child!  Can you say the same of Me?  Do I fill up your senses and permeate the atmosphere around you?  Child, do you love Me?  Zeph. 3:17, “The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in His love He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

You are My child, and I have given you authority.  Use it!  You are a spirit-being able to move in the supernatural, thereby impacting the natural world around you to bring glory to Me. So many have been operating in the natural attempting to change what is taking place in the heavenlies.  This is why so many are battle-worn and tired, dropping out of the fight.  Your understanding is skewed, and you must change your thinking.  You are only empowered for works to the extent that your faith has been energized by remaining in Me, walking in My Spirit and allowing Him to direct every action. Gain wisdom and insight by fighting on your knees first, then you can confidently stand knowing that the battle belongs to Me.  This is the life of an overcomer.  This is a transformed nature.  Rom. 8:5-10, “For those who identify with their old nature set their minds on the things of the old nature, but those who identify with the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.  Having one’s mind controlled by the old nature is death, but having one’s mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace.  For the mind controlled by the old nature is hostile to God, because it does not submit itself to God’s law – indeed, it cannot.  Thus, those who identify with their old nature cannot please God.  But you, you do not identify with the old nature but with the Spirit – provided the Spirit of God is living inside you, for anyone who doesn’t have the Spirit of Christ doesn’t belong to Him.”
